Suse keymapping problem
I just did a fresh install of Suse 11.1 Gnome. The only changes made are updating and I installed Thunderbird. I have the default US keyboard. The up arrow now for some reason opens up a "Print Screen" window. I discovered it while in terminal and hitting the up arrow to go back in commands, but it has the same result no matter where I am. This only happens in Suse.
Further investigation: Prtscn or alt-Prtscn is replaced by up-arrow and alt-up-arrow. Prtscn doesn't work at all. I've checked the keyboard shortcuts and the Take a screenshot and Take a screenshot of a window are Print and alt-Print as they should be. Anybody?????
It sound as if the keycodes are wrong. Look at
It should contain the lines
<PRSC> = 107;
<UP> = 111;
If these scan-codes are assigned the wrong way round, there's your problem.
Even within this message up arrow gives prtscn.
It was fine immediately after the install. There were two updates. After the first one I think it was still OK, but after the second and larger update the problem started.
This is really very strange. Never seen anything like this before.
